A poem I wrote for my cousin almost two years ago. His birthday would have been today, March 21, 2013. May he rest in peace...my cousin Jonathan James.
You sat on my bed to tell me goodbye,
I'll see you later on; someday
Knowing the fortitude of my distance,
I watched puzzled....
In a faint dream I wasn't sure if it were you
I froze...as you realised the raising of my skin,
You became someone familiar,
So fear wouldn't be upon me
I smiled, but with a worrisome aspiration of some sort
You were near...
I love you precious angel
You always looked out for me
You were a big brother; not so old
You spread your joy and love
Silly moments and crazy times
Never stopped loving...
Wishing my last 'goodbye' to you was closer...
Though there's reason
I will miss you...
Never leaving those sweet memories untold
With a heavy heart and a tearless cry
I say to you no true goodbyes...see you later.
